rpm -qp --requires anaconda-runtime-10.1.1.46-1.i386.rpm 
libxml2-python  
python  
rpm-python >= 4.2-0.61

...but buildinstall blows chunks if rhpl isn't there

While we're on the subject, it looks like kdb is required as well (at least on
some arches).

anaconda-runtime intentionally has absolutely minimal requirements to avoid
imposing requirements on people wanting to generate their own hdlists with
genhdlist.

That's for the RHEL4 world, but is this something we should change for Fedora
and RHEL5?  Add those deps to the anaconda-runtime package?

Comment 9 Joel Andres Granados 2008-04-21 10:45:36 EDT
Anaconda in RHEL4 already has dosfstools and rhpl in the requirements.
I this still an issue in the current builds?

long since worked around on my end.
